Adjunct Faculty Appointment & Reappointment


Adjunct appointments may be held by faculty members who hold primary appointment(s) in other departments within the School of Medicine or elsewhere on campus. Please contact the applicable department or division if you are interested in applying for this type of internal adjunct faculty appointment. 

Adjunct appointments may also be given to individuals with primary responsibilities external to the University and School of Medicine (i.e. in business, industry, or another academic institution) that have a close working relationship with a SOM department but hold no other appointment on campus. 

School of Medicine departments require, at minimum, that adjunct faculty members be willing to contribute at least 50 hours to the SOM mission over two years. All applications are individually evaluated by departmental leadership.

If you are interested in applying for an external adjunct faculty appointment, please complete the Adjunct Faculty Appointment Application.
